Protect Your Bubble Now Offers a Single Protection Plan For Multiple Mobile Devices, Electronics and Appliances

It's the One Plan that Protects the Things That Matter Most Under Your Roof, No Matter What Brands

ATLANTA, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Protect Your Bubble, a specialty protection brand, today announced a new type of coverage – an all-in-one plan that covers multiple devices, electronics and appliances. The company's new protection plan covers all the things that customers can't live without, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs, TVs, appliances and other items like cameras and gaming gear. Customers choose which devices to cover, no matter where they were purchased. The more devices customers cover, the more they save.

"Today, the average household contains more than five electronic devices, and we all depend on our devices more than ever," said Stacey Vogler, Managing Director of Protect Your Bubble USA. "Our research shows that people want coverage for the devices they can't live without, but they find the store policy options confusing because they buy devices from different brands at different times. We make multi-device coverage simple and affordable with one plan."

Protect Your Bubble's new multi-device coverage is designed around the customer, not the device. Customers have one account, policy and bill. The flexible new policy option allows them to add or drop coverage on individual devices as their needs change. The monthly charge to cover each mobile phone, tablet, laptop or PC starts at just $5.99; TV coverage is available from between $5.99 and $9.99, and appliance protection is only $3.99.

Protection plans can also include wireless wearables like Google Glass, smartwatches and fitness bands. Other peripherals such as headphones, speakers and gaming systems are options consumers can select when bundling their electronic devices under this new offering. New options will be added as products continue to evolve for the purpose of future-proofing consumer gear.

The more devices customers cover, the more they save. For example, it costs $5.99 a month to insure a family's first iPhone 5S, but then they can add another iPhone 5S for $4.99 and a third iPhone 5S for only $3.99. For a family of four, to cover 4 iPhones would cost $19/month. For a single individual to cover a smartphone, laptop and refrigerator, the total cost could be as low as $13/month.

With the new protection plans, customers don't have to worry about mechanical breakdowns after the manufacturer's warranty expires, and they're covered for accidental damage to their devices, including spills, drops and cracked screens, as well as damage caused by power surges and lightning strikes.

Protection plans are available for devices within three years of purchase, and devices are eligible for coverage until they are three years old. The deductible for smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs and TVs is just $49, and there is no deductible at all on appliance coverage. Filing a claim is simple online or over the phone, and Protect Your Bubble makes sure customers get a replacement device or reimbursement to purchase a new one fast – within one or two business days for a smartphone and as quickly as five days for laptop or PC repair.

"At Protect Your Bubble, we're committed to improving life for modern consumers," Vogler noted. "This new coverage option is an extension of that commitment. We don't just sell policies – we build relationships with our customers, so it makes sense to design a policy around them instead of centering coverage on the device. This customer-centered approach will become even more important as the Internet of Things evolves and more customers integrate technology from multiple brands into their lives and homes."

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
